A fantastic presentation of this classic piece.
I've started trying to limit my blogging to just half a day so that I have time for my real life, but the problem I encounter isn't that that the blogging per se is tedious or time-consuming, but that as I surf around I find all this cool stuff that takes time to explore.
Today, for example, I discovered, is Miss Cellania's 4th Blogiversary. So she posted links to prior blogiversary posts plus ten videos, including this one, which I had to watch... and so it goes. My sincerest thanks to her for maintaining such an interesting and good-humored blog, and best wishes for her continuing success. Her blog is HERE, for those few of you not acquainted with it.
Now, re the music and the video. From the YouTube blurb I learned this
Q: Where does the toccata end and the fugue begin?The presentation's visual elements really helped me "see" the music; in addition to the expected "scale" tonal arrangement, the length of the bars correlate with duration of notes, and the colors correspond to different organ stops.
A: The fugue starts at 2:51 and the toccata returns at 7:12, but between these two points, parts which are strictly fugal alternate with episodes that are more toccata-like, so it's not 100% clear-cut (like in some other toccata/fugue pairs he wrote).
If you like classical music, this is totally worth watching fullscreen.
